After its president TM Roh teased “the most remarkable S-series device we’ve ever created”, Samsung is announcing today when we can learn more. The upcoming Galaxy Unpacked event, which is the company’s first this year, will take place virtually on Wednesday, February 9 at 10 am ET (7 am PT). You can watch the event at Samsung websitealthough Ploonge also has our own live stream with pre- and post-show Q&A to discuss the news.
Samsung is expected to unveil the next S-series flagship, and if it doesn’t drastically change the naming standard it’s been using for the past few years, then we should see the Galaxy S22. Based on the rumor, there may not be many huge updates to the next-gen product. The most significant improvement could be an integrated slot for the S Pen and a more blocky design, which would spell the death of the Note line.
Other reports suggest the new Ultra variant might start with less RAM than last year’s model, offering 8GB at the entry level compared to the S21 Ultra’s 12GB. There may also be a 50-megapixel camera on the regular S22s, on top of the S21’s 12-megapixel sensors.
We won’t know the full details until Samsung officially confirms them on February 9th. You can tune in directly to the company stream, but if you want to chat and react live with us before and after the show, come join us on Ploonge’s YouTube channel rather than. It must be a moment of enlightenment.
